On a typically wet and windy December evening our chair LG used the theme of
Advent and Christmas, entertaining us with some amusing fill-in material.
Introductions were to the question: ‘What would your ideal Advent calendar contain?’
A big welcome to our guest DS accompanied by EH. We hope she enjoyed the evening and we look forward to seeing her again.
For our inspiration, SR read a self penned poem called ‘The New Coat’
Ah Counter – CAW, Timer – JR
Wordmaster – LG with the word ‘jolly’
The prepared speeches were as follows:
Speaker 1 – JR with ‘Power to the People’ evaluated by SR
Speaker 2 – DM with ‘The Cruise’ evaluated by CLW
Our Two Minute Topics master SR asked members to pluck topics from
the trilby including:
The Brussel Sprout – friend or foe?
High Street or online shopping?
Would you wear a Christmas jumper?
Board games or bracing walk?
Christmas music in public places?
Christmas tree – real or artificial?
Two Minute Topics evaluation – CAW

There was no Best Speech award as there were
only two speeches
Best Topic – DS
Best Evaluator – SR – Speaker 1 evaluation
General Evaluator – TH
